ARTIST CALL OUT: TEMPORARY ART INSTALL IN LOCAL PUB
A collaborative project between Margot Natoli, The Surry Hills Creative Precinct and The City of Sydney through the Creative Fellowships Fund.
The Surry Hills Public Art Project is seeking expressions of interest from local artists to revamp an empty wall space in a selected local pub. The Project is designed to support and celebrate local artistic talent by transforming disused public wall space to spark connection and enjoyment in the community. Restrictions are lifting, locals and out of towners are once again flocking to our pubs – we want to celebrate our suburb’s recovery and brighten up our community public spaces with unique local art.
We’re looking for expressions of interest to create a temporary artwork/s in a courtyard space, a disused wall, in a window sill or other possible space in a selected Surry Hills pub. Upon submitting an EOI form, artists will be sent a location-based brief and will be asked to submit broad visual design ideas, art application ideas and required materials along with their artist portfolio.
The successful artist/s and project will be chosen by Margot Natoli, Dove and Olive owner Chris Deale, Urban Village magazine editor Lachlan Colquhoun, ACME Framing’s Geoff Bracken and legendary local artist Nico.
The artist/s will then be provided with the final location and specifics for the installation.
The budget for the Public Art Project is estimated at between $500—$1500 including artist fee, materials and installation. The artist/s will be featured across the Surry Hills Creative Precinct channels including a feature in Urban Village magazine and promotion via all social media channels.
Keen? Complete an EOI form below.
Note: Successful Artist/s will be required to provide a copy of their Public Liability Insurance: 10million.
EOI closing date: 31st July 2020
Artist selection: Mid-August 2020
Installation: Late-August—September 2020
